HotNewHipHop looks at TV shows you must watch if you call yourself a hip-hop fan.
Hip-hop is a way of life. It's about much more than music. It's about fashion, style, and culture. If you call yourself a true hip-hop fan, you best be about that life. You have to know, not only what to listen to, but also what to watch. HotNewHipHop takes a look at the best TV shows to watch if you're a hip-hop fan. These shows might feature some of our favorite rappers. For instance, Ice-T has been a star of Law and Order SVU since 2000, and the long-running crime series has featured appearances by Ludacris, Method Man, and other hip-hop stars.Â
Many of these shows, such as The Wire and Breaking Bad deal with subject matter like drugs and gangs which is popularÂ content to rap about, and thus has become synonymous with hip-hop culture. On the other hand,Â shows like In Living Color and Martin parody black culture, make fun of white rappers, and celebrate hip-hop music. Some of these shows have finished airing while others are currently on TV, but all are worth watching. Take a look through to add a few new (or old) shows into your rotation.
